I believe that every person possesses all the strengths and tools to achieve their healing goals, allowing them to thrive, and that it is my role to assist them in accessing and utilizing those strengths. In my past experience providing professional services to survivors of gender-based violence I have witnessed how profoundly trauma impacts the lives of those who experience it, as well as the lives of those who love them. I have been amazed at the strength and resilience of survivors and have seen the incredible capacity people have to heal, grow and change.

Some presenting concerns that I often work with in therapy include complex trauma, anxiety, depression, bicultural identity, systemic/religious abuse , sexuality, emotional awareness, relationship issues, family dynamics and developmental trauma.
"There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you." - Maya Angelou. Have you ever found yourself stuck within stressful relationships, triggering environments or confusing emotions? That "stuck" feeling can often lead to stagnation in our day to day lives, and uncertainty about the future. I address these struggles by utilizing a holistic, trauma-informed approach, which incorporates body-oriented, anti-oppression and harm reduction practices. These strategies allow me to focus on the strengths already within each client, while also uncovering past wounds that might be limiting growth.

I specialize in working with teens and young adults/adults who are navigating difficult life transitions, individuals coping with immigrant-experience related stressors, and those with a family history of substance abuse and trauma.
Taking the first steps toward therapy can often be difficult and intimidating. I strive to create a non-judgmental and safe space for clients to be their authentic selves and begin working through their challenges. I believe that every person has the innate strength to make positive and sustainable change. Through my experience, I've found that self-love and acceptance brings about healing and the ability to lead a fulfilling and meaningful life. With empathy, genuine interactions and direct feedback, I work with my clients to help them achieve their goals.

The majority of my professional career has been focused on people on the LGBTQ+ spectrum, young people “at-risk” of high school drop-out, and survivors of sexual assault/ domestic violence .
You have the answers that you are looking for - my role as your therapist is to work in collaboration with you to bring those skills, capacities, and experiences to the forefront. My personal identities (i.e. Latinx and Asian), along with my education in psychology, religion, and social work, inform my practice through a lens of anti-oppression that is affirming of people on the LGBTQ+ spectrum, people of all sizes, racial, and religious identities, parenting and non-parenting people, diverse relationship structures, kinksters, people who have been incarcerated, and people who work(ed) in underregulated economies (i.e. sex work).

My clinical areas of strength include childhood trauma/Complex PTSD/PTSD, dissociation, attachment wounding, self-worth, personality disorders, and issues surrounding intimate partner violence , and relationship issues.
As your therapist, one of my priorities is to walk alongside you as you grow into the best version of yourself, embracing your individuality and strengths. It can be difficult to balance internal safety and values with the external commotion in the world. A sense of disillusionment occurs when our external wants do not meet our internal needs. I focus on your concept of self-worth as it relates to emotional disturbance, fragmentation of the self, maladaptive thinking patterns, and dissociation. Working collaboratively to assist you in reaching your best emotional, mental, and spiritual alignment is the focus of my practice.

I have an extensive background working with survivors of sexual assault and intimate partner violence , as well as their families.
Prioritizing mental health, now more than ever, is paramount to leading a healthy and fulfilling life. The personal and systemic traumas we encounter can lead to increased anxiety, isolation, depressive symptoms, and physical ailments. You are not alone! I have vast experience working in integrated health and understanding how stress and trauma impact us physically. I also recognize the secondary trauma that can arise from dealing with the systems meant to help us. I specialize in trauma-informed therapy and am EMDR trained. Creating a non-judgmental, safe, and reliable space is my number one priority.

I specialize in working with clients impacted by trauma--including sexual, physical, and emotional assault/ abuse , neglect, and violence --and helping clients process grief and loss.
Humans have an amazing capacity to cope with trauma, loss and extreme stress; however, sometimes events overwhelm all our capacities, and even when those events are over we struggle to get past them and feel fearful or hopeless about our future. Using both EMDR and talk therapy, we will work in the present to identify problems, patterns, and symptoms; trace those issues to the past events that source them; reprocess those events to alleviate the present issues; and build resources to foster hope in the future.

Now accepting clients! Facing life's challenges isn't easy. Living with mental health struggles can be isolating due to social stigma. You may feel overwhelmed, anxious, isolated, or hopeless. Maybe you've experienced something painful or traumatic that's affecting you, including systemic violence or identity-related oppression. Understandably, it might feel like there's no way things could improve. While counseling can't change everything, having support through your toughest times can help. That's why I'm here. You want a counselor with open ears, an open mind, and an open heart. Someone to help you best weather life's storms.
